A Sinn Féin delegation travelled to Brussels yesterday for talks with the EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier. Following the meeting, Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald said she raised the "continued frustration" at the lack of clarity on solutions for the Irish border.

At the same time, May gave an assurance that no barriers between Northern Ireland and the rest of the United Kingdom will come into play.

Mrs Foster's DUP MPs hold the key to Mrs May's slender Westminster majority. "We are entering into a negotiation around these issues and we wanted him to understand why we felt so strongly about the draft European Union legal text as it now stands", Mrs Foster added.
